Big first commitment for Coach Gott this week. If Graham can convince Purvis and Warren to join him and Tyler Lewis it would likely be a top 5 2012 class.

No doubt. I have a feeling Purvis comes down to Duke and NCSU. It would be HUGE for Gott if he could keep him out of Durham. I have my doubts though ;)

:lmao: That was funny Jeter. It sounds like Bazz is definitely heading to the West coast. I really thought it would come down to one of the two darker blue jerseys. Not sure why any kid would pick UCLA over Duke or Kentucky when it comes to national exposure.

Is this the thread where we talk about knitting?

Is that what Gary's taken up in retirement?

Has the Terps hiring of Dalonte Hill to be an assistant coach and AAU coordinator been discussed in the 2011 thread?

No, but it has been a topic of conversation on DC radio. The takeway is that the hiring is a slap in the face to everything Gary stood for in terms of recruiting, but as long as Turgeon wins, competes in the ACC and gets the Terps to the NCAA tourney, the Maryland fan base won't care.

If UNC doesn't win it all in 2012, it will be a disappointment.

Duke fans vs. Carolina fans... it's what we do to each other. ;)

p.s. thanks for starting the new thread.

UNC, UK, OSU - all could have 30+-win seasons, conference titles and Final Four appearances, and if they don't win it all, the fan base will be disappointed.And I had to get this started because my heart is just not into the NFL. No sense is reading preseason or fantasy stuff when college basketball may start before the NFL.

That's the Andy Polin opinion. I heard him say that yesterday. I hope they ask Feinstein about his take on this today.

Add the words "by the worst coach in history" to the end and I'll start to believe you mean it. :D

Tangentially related, but worth mentioning because I found it interesting when I read it.

Thanksgiving - Thursday, Nov. 24

OSU at Michigan (football) - Saturday, Nov. 26

Duke at OSU (basketball) - Tuesdday, Nov. 29

First Big 10(+2)football championship game - Saturday, Dec. 3 (Indianapolis)

Potential NFL games during that period, Bengals at Browns (Sunday, Nov. 27)

Bengals at Steelers, Ravens at Browns (Sunday, Dec. 4)

We're looking at 10 or so days in the state of Ohio where the only business conducted could be in the food services and alcohol sectors.

A little roundup:

Harrow to Kentucky - and reports that Kentucky already was out of media credentials for the UNC-Kentucky game in December turned out to be false. Bad tweet by someone in the Kentucky AD office.

Justin Anderson has switched his committment from Maryland to UVa. So three of Gary's last four recruits have opted out, but remember folks, according to the NCAA, players commit to a school, not a coach.

Greg Paulus named video coordinator at Ohio State. (Duke at Ohio State, Tuesday, Nov. 29)

Sad note - Ronald Griffin has passed away. He was the man who received the heart of former UNC mascot Jason Ray after Ray was killed by a car while in New Jersey during the Tar Heels 2008 Sweet 16 and Elite 8 games.

Sounds like Duke is planning to move on to the 2013 class in regards to Purvis. Sounds like he'll end up at NCSU. I'm happy for wolfie fans. He is a special talent!

And as someone said on the Duke board, UNC losing McDonald is like a deck chair falling off the titanic.

I thought he was a strong Duke lean? If State got Purvis they would have the #1 class in the country. Not a bad way for Gott to start.

At one point it sounded like he was. His last twitter post said Duke was the leader. But Duke is shifting gears now. I'm not 100% sure why the change. I am HOPING its because perhaps they think they might land several bigs, which is by far the bigger need, as they don't expect Mason to return next year (and Miles will graduate). It could also mean MAYBE they are feeling good with Bazz? Although most think he's staying on the West coast.

Could be a sign of Armageddon, but I think this is the year that Duke and UNC will finally play in the Final Four. :boxing:

I cannot imagine the implosion in Chapel Hill if they at least didnt make the Elite 8. I think its final 4 or bust for them.

I think Purvis is absolutely elite. A young Dwyane Wade IMO. I think a hypothetical Duke class of Saulaimon, Bazz and 2 of Tony Parker, Mitch McGary and Perry Ellis would still be #1 in the nation over an NC St class with Purvis, but IMO, Duke isn't getting Bazz and everything else is pure guessing at this point. The ACC is far more interesting when more than 2 teams are good, so congrats to State if they get him.Duke is planting some very interesting seeds for 2013. They just offered Texas shapshooter Matt Jones (apparently grew up a Duke fan) who is AAU teammates with fellow 13 stud Julius Randle and good friends with saulaimon. They're also probably in the top 3 for Jabari Parker.Even though some people find it strange that I follow the future plans of 16 year olds, all the twists and turns and relationship managing that come with the recruiting process really are fascinating

and sorry to hear about LMac. Really sucks. But UNC is built to absorb the loss, assuming that Bullock and/or Hairston shoot like everyone thinks they're capable of.

Yea, I think this is a situation where you feel more fro the player than for the team.

Duke plays three games in China and one in Dubai from August 17-25. Unless there is a rule against it, I wouldn't be surprised if they were on some ESPN outlet ... And I would watch.

Yep. Love Tar Heel football. Just been away from the boards for a while. Work, still enjoying the Mavs title, etc. I'll start getting into football in the next couple of weeks. Hard for me to talk about it in mid July. Basketball is my favorite sport by leaps and bounds, both college and pro. If there's an ACC football thread I'll start posting there soon.

Looking forward to it.

Seth Curry last night at the ProAm :shock: There are rumblings that many in Durham feel he might end up as good as his brother.
